Schiff Shifting Again; Releases New Rules For Impeachment Inquiry
As if the impeachment hoax could not get more ridiculous and bias towards the Democrats’ agenda to impeach Trump, it just did. Making up the rules as they go has been the name of the game for anti-Trumpers for years, so why would we expect anything else?
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has released a “guide” with three detailed questions that any witnesses called to testify must speak to in order to be considered “relevant” to the impeachment hearings. The questions were sent in a letter from Schiff to ranking member Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and could not be more catered towards the Democrats.
The Resolution passed last week in the House did not allow for questioning witnesses to be limited in any way. The resolution did say witnesses must provide “relevant” testimony. And now, a week later, Schiff is pulling a fast one providing guidelines for what he, and he alone, determines is “relevant.” Those three guiding questions are:
1. Did the President request that a foreign leader and government initiate investigations to benefit the President’s personal political interests in the United States, including an investigation related to the President’s political rival and potential opponent in the 2020 U.S. presidential election?
2. Did the President — directly or through agents — seek to use the power of the Office of the President and other instruments of the federal government in other ways to apply pressure on the head of state and government of Ukraine to advance the President’s personal political interests, including by leveraging an Oval Office meeting desired by the President of Ukraine or by withholding U.S. military assistance to Ukraine?
3. Did the President and his Administration seek to obstruct, suppress, or cover up information to conceal from the Congress and the American people evidence about the President’s actions and conduct?
In criminal cases this is what you would call, leading the witness. Lucky for Democrats, they have no rules to abide by in this rogue impeachment hoax.
